I’m thrilled to have been selected as a 2023 Grosvenor Teacher Fellow by National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions. I’ll be traveling on an expedition Circumnavigating Iceland this July. Only 50 educators from across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico were chosen from a pool of hundreds of applicants. During this field-based educational opportunity, I’ll be sailing aboard the National Geographic Explorer and can’t wait to share my experience with you!

I’m so glad you’ve arrived! My name is Katrin Beinroth, and I am a teacher and school administrator from Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, where I lived until moving to Rhode Island to attend Brown University where I completed a double major in Latin American Studies and International Affairs. After graduation, I decided to pursue a career as an educator and was fortunate to complete a Teaching Apprenticeship at the Shady Hill School in Cambridge, MA. I have taught since 2000, and have worked in public, private, and charter schools. I have a Master’s Degree in Urban Education from Simmons College. In 2008, my family and I returned to Puerto Rico. Since then I have been teaching English and Social Studies at Southwestern Educational Society (SESO), where I am currently the School Director. I am passionate about inspiring students (and now faculty and staff) to explore the world around them and to think critically about the past. I aim to cultivate meaningful student relationships and nurture an Explorer Mindset in my students. I enjoy spending time at the beach with my family, viewing and making art, and traveling of course!
This site is dedicated to sharing my adventures on my expedition A Circumnavigation of Iceland with National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions during July 2023. Are you ready to be inspired?
